Not sure if this has been mention before, but I didn't see it anywhere so I figured I'd start a thread.
I just downloaded SholesMod Updater from Android Market and I must say it is one of the best apps ever. Roots your phone and Installs the customer ROM pretty much all by itself. The ROM itself gives you 2.1 and the milestone browser (aka multitouch). Plus you can overclock the CPU (got mine set at 800mhz) which makes things run a lot smoother. If you are interested in rooting your phone but don't really know how to do it, this thing is the best. The downside is that it only works for the Droid right now.
